This is pre-order. April 1st expected delivery:

Think it's $160 more with two 5a-hr batteries and charger.

I googled around. From what I could find a pair of 5A batteries is about $220 and a dual battery charger is $120. The 3A and 4A batteries are obviously cheaper. I'm guessing that buying a saw with batteries and charger would be cheaper than buying the pieces separately.
Makita says the saw is 12.4# with batteries. That's really light. For comparison a Skil MAG77 is 17# and a Makita 5007MGA is 10.6#.

I was just re-looking at the option with charger and batteries. I have quite a few Makita tools and checked two batteries (5ah) and dual charger would cost $340 ($220 batteries and $120 charger). I also see the right bladed 36v saw with two 3.0 ah batteries and single charger is $420. So I'm even closer yet to ordering.

Nice for in the field, especially when doing roof or high or move-around-a-lot work, but when I'm planted at one place for most/all of my cutting, I prefer the heft and predictable current draw of a corded saw.

Not a fan of left-blade saws- guess I could learn, tho.

The rear handle is nice.

The light weight would be great if I were using the saw much away from the EZ-1, but when I'm on the EZ track, I prefer a bit of weight

Instead, perhaps, EZ might consider offering an accessory for this saw (universally adaptable to most any saw): a 'clip-on' EZ saw base- a base, that once fitted to your saw, could be easily/quickly installed/removed from a saw. The concept, to me, is sound, and fairly simple to make.

I appreciate Dino/EZ keeping their eyes open to new products that might enhance our EZ experience. I think, tho, many of us are holding out (fading) hope that one day, we'll have a ground-up, all the bells and whistles, zero-cut-line to bevel-cut-line, EZ-specific saw. One can only hope......

Thanks for sharing, Dino,
Rick
I remember seeing a hypoid style saw similar to this years ago ....... It never happened & I've all but given up on seeing a dedicated EZ saw
